Velez won 1-0, the outcome was the predicted one in the Free Preview but the game wasn't.
Velez looked much more focused and played better for 20 minutes but the game changed after that. Newell's dominated, and they had their best chance in a penalty kick that included a red card for Velez' captain Fabian Cubero.
Ignacio Scocco missed his 3rd penalty in a row (not counting the penalties shootout vs Boca in the Quarterfinals of Copa Libertadores) but they kept dominating for the remaining 60 minutes of the game, having the best chances to score, while Velez was just holding to the 1-0 lead.
Should have been definitely at least a draw but Velez is the "Super Champion" and will play Copa Sudamericana and Copa Libertadores next season.

This was Lucas Pratto only goal of the game:


Football doesn't stop of course, Copa Libertadores resumes this week with the semifinals (Olimpia beat Colombian side Santa Fe 2-0 last night) and Newell's will host Ronaldinho's Atletico Mineiro at Rosario tonight in a game that could have been the final of this competition.


Most teams started their winter training camps this week with little news in a transfer market.
One of the most important news that is probably going under the radar is that 38 years old Juan Sebastian Veron will try to come out of retirement to play for Estudiantes.
Also Colon has a new coach, ex San Martin's Ruben Forrestello who was deserving a chance in a team that isn't fighting to avoid relegation, and like it was confirmed a few weeks ago, ex Boca's Julio Cesar Falcioni is All Boys' new coach.

Boca is undergoing major rebuilding: Clemente Rodriguez didn't renew his contract and will play for Sao Paulo, Walter Ervitti said he wants to leave, Leandro Somoza will be transferred and Santiago Silva was licensed while he negotiates a transfer.


Inicial 2013 will start on August 2 and this will be the schedule for the first round:
Boca vs  Newell's (will be postponed due to Newell's Copa Libertadores commitments)
Rosario Central vs Quilmes
Godoy Cruz  vs  Argentinos Jrs
Colon vs Racing
Gimnasia vs River Plate
San Lorenzo vs Olimpo
Tigre vs Velez
Arsenal vs Estudiantes
All Boys vs Atletico Rafaela
Lanus vs  Belgrano

Of course only the Sunday of each round is established, the date of each game will be released as usual 10-15 days in advance (or less).
River - Boca on round 10 (probably October 6) and the two "returning" big derbies, Estudiantes - Gimnasia on Round 8 and Rosario Central - Newell's on round 12.

The tournament starts on August 2, ends on December 8 and will have two midweek rounds, the 2nd one (Wednesday August 7) and the 13th (Wednesday October 23).
Also Nacional B has it schedule and Independiente will debut at home against the VERY  small club Brown de Adrogue, that will also make their debut in the 2nd tier of Argentine football.
For those interested, Nacional B will have 22 teams from this season, and this is the schedule:
